    Pros

    It was highly enriching experience working at L&T. It ventures into untraveled road which compelled its employees think out of the box and come up with solutions never arrived before. L&T has been very careful about developing its employees by providing adequate training. A diligent employee can maintain a good work-life balance. Its never 'only work' at L&T. L&T is a great company to work for. Proud to be an former L&Tites.

    Cons

    Not much to say about this section. We are most bothered about maintaining work life balance. But I have never faced this trouble at L&T.
